Galway United travel to Richmond Park to face St Patrick's Athletic tonight knowing that a victory would see them move out of the relegation zone (kick-off 7.45pm).

Saints have only had two days' rest since playing Shamrock Rovers on Saturday night and must plan without Dessie Byrne (hamstring), Bobby Ryan (knee), Stephen Paisley, Gary O'Neill (both groin) and John Murphy (back).

Boss Johnny McDonnell is likely to make a few changes with their season-defining cup semi-final against Bohemians due later in the week.

Galway are likely to name the same side that hammered Bray Wanderers 4-0 on Friday.

Boss Jeff Kenna has no injury concerns ahead of this vital fixture with only three league games remaining after tonight's match.
